The first amendment allows us to gather information about the government (its more than just free speech).

The second amendment allows us to gather guns to protect ourselves from the government.

So, would these two allow us to learn information regarding what guns the governments (like local PDs) have?

Most state's FOIA or similar laws that would exempt getting this information but I think that the laws run into conflict with our first and second amendment rights (how can we defend ourselves without this information?).

Anyone know of a FOIA case similar?
